    Things that make you go "Wait...what?"

    Okay so my story is this. I went to buy an ebook from blacklibrary.com, a site that sells all the Warhammer books, both 40k and fantasy, and is a division of Games Workshop. Trouble is my card got declined, the same card that I have made six prior purchases with from the same place. I figured okay, whatever, I'll call the bank to find out wtf is going on.

    So I call them up, explain the situation to the lady on the phone, and ask why it got declined. She checks the charge and tells me that GWBlackLibrary, the name that comes through from the charge, is on their "fraud" list because it is based in Great Britain. My first thought was "...wait...what?" How is a company worth over 100 million dollars and is fairly well known even in the states listed as a fraud threat just because it is in Great Britain?

    I then ask if there is any way to get around that. She gets her supervisor to override it for a day and a half...That's fine for this purchase but now every time I want a new book to read, which generally happens at odd hours of the night...you know when I actually finish the previous one, I have to call them up again. So instead of buying one book, I bought two this time.

    Anywho this was partially to vent and partially to share a semi-amusing story (at least to me.) Sooooo anyone else have a story about something that made you go "wait...what?"

    orgrim, im replying mostly because i LOVE your signature, that poem is godlike

    also, things that make me go ''wait wat?''
    religius fanatics, and feminist fanatics. we have a group in norway called ''ottar'' wich is simply astonishingly stupid. a disgrace for women.

    also, the pure stupidity of people around me. its perplexing to me that ''that'' sperm cell survived


    also, excuse my poor english, im norwegian

    Once at a gas station diner me and a few friend was watching this old guy clean his trailer instead of driving the trailer to the hose he filled a bucket of water and went 10m back to his trailer and threw it at his trailer then went back to the hose filling the bucket with water and went back to the trailer and did it again
    he continued for atleast a hour then when we where about to go he was still doing it the thing is he also missed the trailer half of the time so all the water came on the ground.
    Was a realy wtf moment.

    When people use the phrase "ain't nothin"
    It's like, really? first off "ain't" isn't a word, 2nd, nothing has a g in it, and 3rd, it's a double negative.
    It's like saying I don't not like tits. It just makes no sense to say it like that, and I always say wait..what?
    Just to get them to fix their bad grammar...oh and my English teacher does this as well, quite irritating.

    When my physicist friend tries to explain this stuff to me... "Wait... what?" is my reaction. When I try to explain Information Technology related things to him, his reaction is exactly the same.

    Ive never heard anybody say it would generate more subs.

    It however, would be very fun to experience it again and see how much the nostalgia effects it. I still think it would be fun to raid in 40 man groups, even though there is never any progression. Play for fun not for gear.

    "Wait... what?" Realize that maybe Touhou lunatic isn't so hard after all. Go cry under bed at personal danmaku failure, while cursing CAVE for being dicks.

    A few years ago when I was at university doing a computing degree while working part-time in retail, I'm packing shelves down the back aisle when this old lady comes up to me, holds up a ball of twine and asks me: "Is this good for stringing basted hams?"

    Keep in mind at this point in my life I'm a guy, early-20's, working retail. My basted ham knowledgebase is understandably rather underdeveloped at this point.

    I missed maybe one, two beats.

    "Yes."
